Summary

Parents of students who attended public schools in the West Area of the Minneapolis school district were surveyed in the Fall of 1974 to (1) determine parent feelings about educational alternatives, (2) give parents input into the decision-making process, and (3) provide parents with information about educational choices and alternatives. The study was conducted by a committee of West Area staff and parents, and the Minneapolis Public Schools' Research and Evaluation Department. Questionnaires were returned by the parents of 2,068 randomly selected students. Eighty-one percent of the mailed questionnaires were returned. More than seventy-five percent of the parents said that having alternative educational programs provided was important to them. Thirty-eight percent of the parents of elementary students were willing to have their child transported to any school in the West Area to get the program of their choice, 43 percent were willing to have their child transported to a school adjacent to their child's present school, while 19 percent said they would choose the nearest available school regardless of the program offered. Parent responses for each school are included in the report. (Author/DEP)
